NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

It was chippy. It was physical. It was everything you would expect a rivalry game to be.

It was Michigan vs. Ohio State.

The Wolverines walked out of Crisler Center on Sunday afternoon with a huge resume-boosting win over the No. 8 team in the country, winning by a score of 74-62.

In a lot of ways, this game was everything we expect to see when these two universities meet on the football field with big-time conference title stakes on the line. It did not disappoint.

The officiating crew was not perfect (it hardly is in this conference), but they by and large let the two teams go at it all afternoon long and decide their business on the floor as opposed to just at the free throw line.

Freshman Jordan Poole returned to his microwave-self on Sunday, scoring 15 points off the bench after a recent cold streak. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman would have 17 points in the win.

OSU was led by Jae’Sean Tate, who posted a double-double with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Keita Bates-Diop chimed in with 17 of his own.

If the Wolverines did not have an NCAA Tournament bid locked in, they do now. The Wolverines now sit at 22-7 overall and 11-5 in conference play. They have a trip to Penn State lined up for Wednesday as their next challenge.

We will have more from this game coming shortly.
